US Rapper Childish Gambino is set to return to London later this month to headline the stage at Brixton’s O2 Academy. The ‘3005’ rapper will be performing a one-off concert as part of his 'Deep Web' tour, following a successful jaunt in the capital earlier this year.
Renowned for his versatility, the former comedy writer attracts a wide audience largely due to his precision packed lyrics, which often defy Hip Hop stereotypes. As well as treating fans to tracks from his latest LP ‘Because The Internet’, concert-goers can also expect to hear classics such as ‘Firefly’ and ‘Heartbeat’
The rapper, who is set to perform on the MTV stage at this year’s V Festival courted controversy earlier this week when he took shots at rap peers Kendrick Lamar, Drake and ScHoolboy Q at a recent gig, claiming to be the ‘best rapper’ according to Time Magazine. During the freestyle, Gambino rhymed: “I’m the best rapper, definitely top five ... I cut their head off, that’s every rapper living. That’s Kendrick, that’s Drake, that’s ScHoolboy, that’s everyone. I don’t give a f**k. I’ll f*****g kill you n***a.”
